During the live, online, and hybrid classes, children discussed the main topics of the initiative and made their own ideas about beautiful, sustainable, and inclusive living and life. The 4-14-year-old pupils expressed their thoughts with comic strips and 3D models of future cities and buildings.
Pupils came up with amazing ideas such as a bubble city, cities filled with music, different building renovations, and transformations, buildings made by robots, new energy sources, green buildings, or underwater buildings.
The main purpose of the Arkki Futuvision project is to enable participation for children and youth in the European Bauhaus project. During the sessions, they ideate, design, and prototype in relation to beautiful, sustainable, and inclusive living and life. Arkki International´s Headteacher, Jere Keskinen leads and facilitates this teacher-pair project with the different groups. Children will continue working on their prototypes until the end of April.
Children are some of the most important users of our cities. Arkki aims to raise their voice and provide them with the means, capacities, and mediums to influence the creation of our future environment.
